One of me friends in another city got to preview this movie last night and she said it was pretty good. She did compare it to a mix of a couple of other movies but I won't repeat those names as I think it might give away too much of the story's direction.
I believe I will go see this on opening weekend. Anyone else thinking of seeing it this weekend?
Its Hard edged Sci-fi to be sure. But because of the nature of the story they don't get you into or behind the main characters in a deep enough way for you to truly root for the characters. You end up just a spectator instead of a companion along for the ride.
The art of the movie was top notch. The tech was good and believable. When a "behind the scenes art of" book is released I will buy it to add to my collection of movie related books. Some have said that there is room for a sequel. I have to say if the writing was sharp they could pull it off. But to me, this story is complete as is.
In the end the money I spent to go see this was worth it. I think if you want to get all the good from this movie you need to see it on the silver screen. Unless your TV at home is an 8 foot wall projection unit and its state of the art color and THX sound!
Yeah i went and watched it on the IMAX this weekend with the folks. I definitely liked the special effects and the tech. The aesthetics heavily reminded me of a certain video game who also had a similar "theme' in the story line. I'll PM you with Dennis, so we don't spoil anything.
